Pizza Cupcakes

ABM_1393286921

These are seriously the EASIEST dinner to throw together on a weeknight for the kids AND one that they can help make!!   I love including my son in the process of cooking dinner and he enjoys getting his hands in the mix.  This recipe is a win win!  Pizza cupcakes would be great as a make ahead meal to freeze and pull out during the week for lunch/dinner OR would be great as a “make your own pizza bar” at your next play date. I can guarantee they will be a hit!!!

I usually just make them with cheese and pepperoni but you could customize each “cupcake” for your family.  Green peppers…. olives…. banana peppers….. Hawaiian toppings….anything you would put on a pizza can go in these!  I’d love to hear what combinations you used!

To make pizza cupcakes you will need:

  • Grands Biscuits (8 Count)- I use Butter Flavor, original would work too, just don’t use flaky
  • Mini pepperoni
  • Pizza Sauce
  • Mozzarella Cheese
  • Any other seasonings you like on your pizza-I use garlic and oregano
  • Non-stick cupcake tins

First spray your cupcake tins with non stick spray so your cupcakes don’t stick.  Next cut each Grands biscuit in half lengthwise.

Push one half of each biscuit in each muffin spot and pull the edges up so that it makes a cup for the toppings.

You will have 16 total cupcakes.

Then fill each muffin with about a tablespoon of pizza sauce.  Add some pepperoni to each and then add any additional toppings.

Cover each muffin with a generous amount of mozzarella cheese and then top with your desired seasonings.

Best part about this recipe?  Bake according to the directions on the biscuits container!  I love that I don’t have to remember a temperature and a time.  I just follow what the biscuits say to do!

Last thing to do??? Enjoy with some ranch!

  1. Just made these for dinner and they were a hit! I’m wondering, though, how they would stand up to freezing and reheating…..

    • Hey!! I’m so glad you liked them! I think they would be a perfect item to freeze. I freeze regular pizza ALL the time! I would put them in double freezer bags and then pull out the morning you want to have them. To reheat the oven would probably be better than the microwave, throw them on a cookie sheet at 350 for about 10 minutes.
